Capetonian Nico Van Reenen, musician, charmer and all-round bearded good guy, has just released his début EP release under Ben Rausch’s So Many Animal Calls label based up in Pretoria.
So who is this guy anyway?
Nico has been around the block a couple of times, and you very may well have seen him perform. He has been fronting his ethereal dream space trojan (I am starting to make my own band-specific genres, all the old ones are lame) band Bateleur, a troupe of friends who are exceptionally good at making music and even better at living life.
But sometimes Bateleur has to take a backseat, but that only happens when Nico has to fly all around the whole wide world to events like SXSW and play in Spoek Mathambo’s backing band Mshini Wam. But that’s a totally small detail.
Now we have pure Nicolaas, undiluted and unfiltered. Cop the album at a name-your-price kinda deal over at Bandcamp.
